English is kind of an international language so it should not be too surprising.

I guess some coutryes have it as an official second language (India, Nepal...). English is kind of a globlal language, so it's important to learn it. It's also important if you want to get a good job.

You do realize that most people who find this diet are in the top 1 or 2% of intelligence, right?

Seriously, even the crazy ones here are really smart.  LOL
